Have your say

WHO, in collaboration with the UHC-Partnership and UHC2030 has embarked on a process to co-create a handbook on social participation. The handbook encourages Member States to strengthen systematic and meaningful government engagement with civil society organisations and communities in national health policy, planning and review processes.

As part of the handbook’s development, a literature review, country case studies and targeted country interviews have taken place. The Handbook is in an advanced stage of development and your views would be useful to shape the final document. It is an important time to consult meaningfully with civil society and community-based organisations to ensure the content will have traction with governments going forward.

Our target audience for the survey are civil society and community groups because they are not usually consulted in the standard WHO peer review processes. However, we also welcome others who would like to contribute, to fill out the survey and give feedback. 

In this stage of the handbook, we present outlines of five of the chapters and seek your feedback on the content, whether the topics and messages resonate with your organisation and if there are any gaps we need to address.

In early February 2020, each chapter of the handbook will be published in full and there will be further opportunity to comment meaningfully on the content.

Read more background here and a short overview presentation. Please feel free to reply to the questions in any language. We will translate everything.
